“Highly recommended to eat here”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Had lunch with my bezzy mate here last week. Sat in the window table overlooking a (grey and rough!) sea. Have also been there when it's been clear blue skies and calm sea, or a moonlit night. Beautiful position. Good choice on menu. Friendly service. Ala Carte menu is delicious and excellent value for the 3 course meal.

Service is unobtrusive and I found myself tempted to please them, rather than the other way around. Just little things - (they didn't give me wifi password at check-in) and not finding it in the literature in the room I then searched hotel and no one about (no answer to reception bell, no one in kitchen, etc, then rang their phone repeatedly and no answer or answering machine). I would like to think this was a glitch but...
It's always a bad sign when I feel I am imposing (felt a bit the same at breakfast). I believe proprietors and staff must go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and wanted.
Apart from this room for improvement, the establishment had a lot to offer, albeit characterful.

Recently stayed at moelwyn, greeted by owner, who was incredibly kind to two walkers. Room overlooked the sea and was nicely appointed and very clean. Enjoyed a really tasty locally sourced fish dinner, wine very well priced. Breakfast had to be the scrummiest kippers in Wales. Thank you

The sun came out in the evening after a wet North Wales day so after a walk on the beach we chanced upon The Moelwyn and were very glad we did. Friendly service, fresh seafood, nice wine list and polished off with great Welsh cheeses - lovely! We will return no doubt.
